Ted Rau: Sociocracy as a Solution for Community Organizing
Day 5: Community
On Friday January 29, 2021, Ted Rau spoke at The Greater Reset Activation. Self-governance is critical to serve a group’s or community’s needs in a way that meets their actual core needs, in their own way. Being “active participants in the decisions that affect them” is much easier said than done. Who speaks when? Who decides, and how? How can we divide up authority and responsibility in a way that’s transparent and increases accountability?
